The Henry Girls

FacebookTwitteriTunes

The Henry Girls are three sisters from Co.Donegal, Ireland. They were brought up by music loving parents who introduced them to an eclectic array of sounds such as The Everly Brothers, The Bothy Band, The Beatles, Johnny Cash and Ella Fitzgerald as well being surrounded by traditional Irish music. In their own music, they have a unique rootsy sound which blends their native traditional Irish folk music with hints of americana, bluegrass and blues. They are renowned for their fine close harmonies and musical arrangements, and have been likened to such great musical acts as Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Dixie Chicks and The Be Good Tanyas. They write songs that are tuneful, catchy, and warm. Their repertoire is scattered with old and new and their style reflects many influences and tastes.

They have been playing music together since childhood but decided to go professional in 2010. Their first tour outside Ireland was in 2011.

Since then have become one of the most talked about folk/roots acts from Ireland and have been captivating audiences on worldwide stages, having toured extensively in Germany, America, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Austria and the UK. They are natural performers and are known for their warm personalities, onstage and off.

The sisters recorded their first album ten years ago as The Henry Girls. By 2013, they had recorded five albums, the first three of which were never properly released, but got the sisters some airplay in Ireland and helped them define their sound plus start to make a bit of a name for themselves. However, their two latest offerings, December Moon and Louder Than Words, both produced by legendary Scottish producer Calum Malcolm, have been their breakthrough albums. They have brought the band to international attention, having garnered rave reviews, countless airplay and extremely positive press on both sides of the Atlantic. Huffington Post declared their album December Moon as one of the top ten albums of 2013.

In 2010, they were nominated for an Irish Film & Television Award (an Irish Oscar) for Best Original Score, having had their songs and instrumental compositions appear on the soundtrack of a film called A Shine of Rainbows. Soon after The Henry Girls appeared as backing vocalists for the acclaimed Irish singer Mary Black on her album Stories from the Steeples and one of the songs they appear on is a duet with the fabulous Imelda May.

They have collaborated with numerous groups and solo artists including The Hothouse Flowers, Altan, Dervish, Donal Lunny, The Fox Hunt from West Virginia, Session Americana from Boston, Moya Brennan and many more.
